​Three Techniques to Stop Panicking and Start Speaking

You don’t need to be an extrovert to speak with impact.

Your talk doesn’t need to be perfect.

1) Practice, practice, practice.

  • There’s not enough time.
  • They’re intimidated.
  • Practicing feels awkward.
  • They’re afraid of embarrassing themselves in front of their colleagues.
  • They’re not sure that practice is going to help.
  • They hate public speaking, so they avoid it before the presentation, have an out-of-body experience and then pretend it never happened.

2) Know your why.

3) Remember to breathe.
